Fogo de Chao is a chain that I enjoy, and I particularly like the rodizio concept where you first go to the buffet table for some tasty appetizers followed by the rotating waiters bringing you various cuts of meats. But for the prices that they charge, I would expect the service to be better - which is not something that I had experienced before at any other locations of this chain (have previously been to Pittsburgh and DC locations several times). For a reservation that was within the first 30 minutes of dinner starting, we were still made to wait ten minutes to be seated after checking in - then we we get to the table, there were only 4 or 5 other tables seated so the reason for the wait didn't seem to exist. When we were done with the meal, it took nearly 25 minutes to get the check - you would think they would want the table to turn over more quickly given how many people were at the bar waiting to be seated. Perhaps they were just having a bad early evening, but this is the first Fogo location I have been to in the past two years that had these issues

Sure, this is a fun place to eat, and its a novel idea to many that you can eat unlimited meat, but $80+ (including tax and tip) only for unlimited meat is a lot of money considering how much your stomach can actually take. What was disappointing was the service. The servers are obviously trained with the same introduction to the menu but when asked anything that deviated from this they just couldnt answer. When asked about liquor selections or options our waitress had no idea what we were talking about, instead just saying that they had a full selection. This went on for a while and she looked really aggravated, until we asked for someone else, who did understand what we were talking about. The waiters who brought the meats around looked like they had a bad day and were really unhappy with their job. They'd plonk the swords with the meat on the table abd ask in a monotone, "Chicken? ". Sort of reminded me on a plane when asked what we want for dinner! I chose the fish, actually, and was disappointed with what I got for the price. It was small, bland and just not appetizing. I'm sure people think this is a fun place for special occasions etc but for the same price I'd go to another restaurant that has better service and better food. There are many nearby. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant.

Went by myself to the Copley location and ALL staff were magnificent. I enjoyed my experience at Fogo since I stood up to the salad bar and tried to carry myself out the door. Thank you for such an amazing service and delicious food. Can’t wait to come back to try the papaya dessert and shout out to one of my waiters for this delicious cappuccino 💖

Overdone meats, inferior cuts, wines priced at 4 x retail - and a very poor selection as well - along with sporadic service have transformed the restaurant name to "Ciao Fogo". We've come her for several years now for a big family celebration, and have witnessed the disappointing deterioration of the food and service. Never again!

I was very excited about visiting this Brazilian restaurant and it disappointed me. Most of the staff was courteous and friendly but at times it felt like they were rushing you to eat your food. The most disappointing part was the low quality of meat. Cheap and tough meats. Not going back!

We have been here in multiple occasions and the excellent dining experience still remains in every visit. Today our caipirinha drinks were made by a talented and courteous bartender Michelle, and they were amazing! The Waiters always eager to please and serve and the quality of the food is absolutely great. Probably one of the best Brazilian churrasco I ever had.

If you see my previous reviews, I used to love this place, having dined there many times. BUT!!! I went there two weeks ago and wow! Salad bar severely under-stocked and the service was….TERRIBLE! We got two runs of steak (top round, not the good stuff), and then 4-5 rounds of sausage, chicken, and pork After $600+ for 5 of us for essentially sausage…...felt ridiculously underserved.. Stay away until they figure this out!

If you want to experience Brazilian buffet and love meats. Then this place is for you. There is a round card with green one side and red on the other side. The green mean they will continue to serve you. If you're full, flip it to red. There is a salad bar area where you can help yourself. The chefs will come by with different kind of meat cuts. Most of the meats are flavourful and some aren't. Some are dry. Service was fast and staffs were friendly. Cost of buffet without drinks about 62 bucks per person. Street parking or garage.

Sat. 3/5/2022 6 pm dinner for 8. To start with ,a seafood tower was way over cooked to the point the crab claws were impossible to get out of the shell, the 4 large shrimp were dry and over cooked as was the other items. Some of the other items on the tower felt frozen with ice. This was brought to the attention of our waitress who looked at me confused. I asked her to report it to the mgr. which I doubt she did. There were 3 bowls on the salad bar that were empty which should have been refilled. There was also something in a stainless steel heated container which contained a dark gravy ???? The infrequently of the meat was minimal and not the variety we have experienced in other Brazilian restaurants. This was a very expensive night that was definitely not worth it and we will never be going back. B Williams

This was our third visit here and it was as awesome as the first and second visits (a graduation celebration in May 2017 and Christmas dinner in Dec. 2018). It was super easy to book what we needed through Open Table. The salad bar is extensive, fresh and diverse in offerings and the meat - the meat! - is delicious. We've sat in three different places at very busy times and the servers still find us with their many different offerings.I'm sure we'll be back when we're back in Boston.

The food was great!! Michelle really was awesome. My gf and I didn’t know what to do when we got there because we really hadn’t been before and nobody told us what was included. She showed us the salad bar and really took care of us. I’ll definitely be back and hope to see her again. The one thing I’ll say is that when I ask for a certain meat, they should have it within 10 minutes. I waited a lot longer and only asked for a specific meat like 2 times.

Excellent and friendly service. The manager even came by to ask how everything was. The food was delicious and perfectly cooked to my liking. I had the lamb chops cooked medium rare. The portions were enormous, I wound up taking a “doggie bag”, they provided boxes and a bag, even gave me several more of their amazing cheesy buns that come immediately when you first sit down. I am definitely coming back again with my family to do the “experience”, all you can eat Brazilian barbecued meats of all sorts brought to your table and carved freshly by the waiter, along with an incredible salad/sides buffet style layout in the middle of the restaurant, where you can pick and choose anything you want! Be prepared to go on an empty stomach. Hands down, this has to be my favorite place to eat in Boston, especially for a carnivore like me!

I reserved a table for a business dinner some weeks ago and visited the restaurant on Sunday past. Whilst the food and the waiter service were both excellent the attitude and lack of professionalism of the Maitre d’left a lot to be desired, seating us 20 minutes after our reservation time, behind others who arrived after us and then only after the third time of asking to be seated. Not what I had come to expect from previous visits to the restaurant and certainly not what I wanted to happen when I was entertaining important business clients. Had it not been for this poor customer service experience we would have happily scored the restaurant 5*!

Oh goodness, where to begin? We went to FdC for our anniversary. We couldn't have chosen better. The food was wonderful (I had the market table, and my better half had the whole meat and market experience). The service was extraordinary - the whole team could not have been more attentive. Michele made sure we always had a full glass, Bruna and Jackie checked in to make sure we were comfortable and getting enough to eat (!!!) and a special call out to Paulo who, when I wisfully sighed that I would love a capirinha but can't have sugar went and made me a sugar free version (with passionfruit! So good!). Another call out for every one of the guys bringing different meat samples to our table to tempt us. It was such a wonderful experience. (If you go, don't miss the papaya cream for dessert. I know, you are going to think you can't eat another bite, but this is soooo worth it.) (Obligatory note: Great COVID 19 protections in place. Social distancing, mask use, hand sanitizer... very well thought out.) As soon as we can contemplate eating again, we will be back. :) Such great food, wonderful service and a delightful evening out.

This was my 3rd vist and 3rd Fogo de Chão. The first two where in Brasilia and Sao Paolo respectively. Julian was our waiter and he expertly took care of us and likey dozens of other diners. He floated through the restaurant like there was two of him. He greated everyone as if they were family and checked to ensure his guests were well served with sides, drinks and ensured every available cut of meat was sampled if wanted. The 3rd Fogo de Chão for us was in Boston during a business trip. I had raved about my previous experience to my wife and was excited to take her for a birthday. The restaurant is well situated in the same building as the Westin. The seatings are comfortable and the lighting appropriate. The meat is prepared to perfection despite it not being cooked over coals due to local fire regulations. Pace yourselves and you will enjoy a pantheon of meats, beef, pork, chicken and lamb...don't over fill your platenour yourselves, ask for small slices and take a break between plates..Caipirinha will help between servings...let it melt before you slurp it down. Enjoy the food coma.

Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
